Tele Wide viewfinder for Q

I am looking for a viewfinder for my Q .... really tired of getting the sun hitting the monitor screen: no way to compose an image at all !

Preferably, a "Tele Wide" of some sort, as long as it is in top shape and that it will fit without effort on the flash shoe.

Hoping someone will part with theirs.

Cheers!

I just saw this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Used-Petri-Tele-Wide-Finder-Rangefinder-multi-focal-/200752131550
and this: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Kalt-Tele-wide-Finder-for-Auxiliary-Telephoto-Wide-An...item35c194509b
are any of these good?

Heard somewhere the Petri was a bit different in the brightlines and field of view , I can only vouch for the Tele-wide.
Look for Yashica Electro 35. The viewfinder was part of an accessory lens kit.

Look at this on eBay:

I second the recommendation by crewl1, to whom I'm indebted for the tip to look out for the Yashica.

Still waiting on the eBay seller who doesn't reply to his messages.
eBay states that the messages will be returned within 24-48 hours ... 24 hours to go.
